YOUR WORKERS' COMP CLAIM

What To Do When You Are Hurt at Work In Middletown, CT

However, just as with any other insurance carrier, workers' comp may resist paying out what you are owed.

Call us today to discuss your case with one of our skilled workers' comp attorneys for free.

Steps to Take After Your Work Injury

When you become injured at work, the injury itself can be the least of your worries. The Farmington, CT  personal injury law firm specialize in making sure that the employer respects your rights under Connecticut Workers' Compensation law. Follow these steps to ensure that we can get you the recovery you deserve:

  1. Notify your employer. Under the statute, this notice must be formally filed within 1 year of the date of your accidental injury. Your claim can be denied if you do not file your claim with the employer and the Connecticut Workers Compensation Commission within the permitted time frame.  Also make sure to record the name of the supervisors who you reported the injury to. Also, write down the names of any witnesses and their phone numbers or other contact information. Keep track of your days missed from work and out-of-pocket expenses in a log so that your Hartford, CT  area workers' compensation attorney at James F. Aspell, P.C. can help get those expenses back.
  2. Get medical treatment for your injury. Connecticut law requires the employer to provide you with medical treatment, but there is a catch - the employer must first authorize the doctor to provide treatment. If the employer has not authorized the doctor to provide treatment, the employer will not pay for that treatment. Once the authorization has been given, the company doctor will decide what treatment you need. Make sure to report all aches and pains to the doctor, because sometimes the doctors who the employer has chosen will under prescribe treatment. The Middletown, CT area workers' compensation attorneys at The Law Offices of James F. Aspell, P.C. specialize in dealing with this problem to get you the treatment you deserve - physical therapy, medications, CAT scans, MRIs, crutches, splints, surgeries, therapy or anything else that will help injured workers make a full recovery.

How to File Your Workers' Compensation Claim

However, those injured while on the job do have rights which should be addressed as soon as possible with an experienced Middletown workers' compensation lawyer.

It is important to contact a personal injury attorney with a winning record as a workers comp lawyer as soon as possible.

WORKERS' COMP LAW

Your Rights As a Worker

State law requires most Middletown businesses to carry worker's compensation insurance. This insurance coverage is intended to protect employees if they suffer an injury at work. Workers' compensation laws require all Connecticut employers to provide this insurance coverage. While there are some exceptions to this law, most workers have the right to pursue a workers' compensation claim if they sustain an injury or develop an illness while doing their job.

For more information on Connecticut  Workers' Compensation laws, here are the compiled statutues.

If you need to report an injury at work, or if you have further questions about the Connecticut injury law process that involves a workers' compensation claim, our Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Middletown can guide you through the process to ensure that everything is completed correctly.

Workers Comp Benefits

What benefits can an injured employee seek? Workers' compensation insurance typically provides partial wage replacement benefits as well as medical care. People seeking compensation can file a claim instead of suing their employer in a personal injury case. In fact, most who suffer an injury at work are legally prohibited from suing their employer and must file a workers' compensation claim to receive any benefits.

James f. Aspell, P.C.  helps injured workers recover their full benefits under Connecticut’s Workers’ Compensation laws. Jim Aspell and our entire team have represented many injured workers to maximize their recovery. Our workers compensation lawyers personally file claims, fight for medical care, ensure disability payments are timely made, file and try hardship hearings and work with your employer and insurance company to get the benefits to which you are entitled. For any work injury, you get:

  • Your medical care authorized and medical expenses paid by your employer.

    Connecticut law requires that injured workers receive compensation for any medical expenses incurred as a result of workplace injury. As explained above, employers generally have the right to choose the doctor that you will go see. However, the experienced Middletown, CT area workers' compensation lawyers at James f. Aspell, P.C. have been successful in the past with getting workers treatment by a physician of their choosing for some treatment, including for the more involved procedures, like surgeries. Though it can be a difficult case to make, if you want treatment by your own provider you need to get aggressive representation like that at James f. Aspell, P.C.

  • Approximately 60% of your average weekly wage while you cannot work.

    Injured workers are due a scheduled percentage of the value of their wages while they are treated for their injuries. If an employer can provide the employee with labor that can be completed while on restrictions imposed by the treating doctor, then the employee must perform that newly assigned task until the restriction is lifted. Employers sometimes play games with job assignments for their injured workers by reassigning them to tasks that do not comply with the restrictions. Even worse, workers are sometimes fired for exercising their rights under workers' compensation laws. Both of these behaviors are illegal. The award-winning trial attorneys at Burger Law know how to deal with these games and will take employers to task for them so that injured workers can get the recovery they are owed under the law.

  • A lump sum (and tax-free) disability payment for permanent partial disability (PPD) or permanent total disability (PTD).

    The employer is only required to pay you for lost wages and medical expenses until you reach your maximum medical improvement. When the law says you will not get any better, the employer is no longer obligated to pay you any disability payments. At that point, the employer may offer you a settlement that is intended to compensate you for any diminishment in your capacity to work for the remainder of your life as a result of sustaining a workplace injury. Our aggressive Middletown area area workers' compensation attorneys  have recovered millions of dollars, including large workers' compensation settlements. This payment represents the last time the employer will compensate you for your injury, and with one of our experienced trial lawyers on your side, you know you can expect the best possible result: a large payment to help deal with your injury.

When injured at work, you should quickly get all of your benefits and return to work for minor injuries. Serious injuries can mean a big recovery with the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer. If your employer retaliates against you or does not provide you with the proper benefits, James Aspell will fight them in the workers' compensation division or with a civil wrongful discharge claim. Many Connecticut workers  do not even know they are entitled to this disability payment. Our workers' compensation attorneys only take a 20% fee on the disability payment when we win your workers' compensation case.

Work Injury Cases

When you are injured on the job, you need an experienced Middletown workers' compensation lawyer who is ready and willing to fight for you every step of the way, whether that is in your workers' compensation claim, a third-party personal injury or wrongful death claim or even going to trail to get you the compensation you need.
